A natural loofah sponge is an eco-friendly alternative to plastic ones for use in the shower. But over time, a natural loofah can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. While biodegradable, a loofah can be cleaned and disinfected. The simplest method is to take a wet loofah and microwave it on high for about 90 seconds. This will eradicate germs and leave the loofah smelling fresh and clean. Just be sure there are no metal parts, and keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t dry out completely in the microwave.
